This certain hope of being saved is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls, connecting us with God himself behind the sacred curtains of heaven, where Christ has gone ahead to plead for us from his position as our High Priest, with the honor and rank of Melchizedek. – Hebrews 6:19-20 (Living Bible).
The hope that is had in salvation in Christ Jesus is a strong and trustworthy anchor for our souls. This is not an insinuation, it is a fact. Its no wonder Jesus is also called the Prince of peace. Our hope, our expectation in our salvation in Christ Jesus is anchor for our souls.
Anchors are used in ships. Their function is to keep the ships steady so that they don’t float away from port. This is what our hope in salvation does to our souls; it steadies our souls and brings that peace and calm that is desperately needed a times.
When this hope cannot be found, we see an increase in depression and suicides in our society. Recently the spate of suicides seem to have increased, but they are nothing new. Hangings, drug overdoses, a self-inflicted gunshot, you name it; these things have happened for a long time. The most popular cause of this seems to be depression.
The truth is a of people don’t have this hope; this is the only strong and trustworthy anchor that can steady a tumultuous soul. Money, fame and even friends around you can’t do it, it is only hope in salvation in Christ that can.
This hope can only be gotten by receiving the finished work of Christ by faith. Call on the name of the Lord Jesus and believe He is the bringer of your salvation and you will have this hope. Lay hold of this trustworthy anchor for your soul. Receive Jesus Christ today.
